we were go­ing to shut them down,” Shelly said. “We felt we had the right scheme in place. We were kind of wor­ried be­cause we had gone 21/2 weeks with­out play­ing a game, but th­ese guys were chomp­ing at the bit. Our kids make plays.”

Af­ter eat­ing up most of the clock in the third quar­ter, 6SrL­nJ­fieOd’s BrendDn BoyOe broke through for a 33-yard touch­down run. With the two-point con­ver­sion, the Spar­tans were up 16-0 and in com­mand.

Lower Moreland just never got any­thing go­ing. Af­ter the 6SrL­nJ­fieOd WouFK­down, WKe Lions got a promis­ing kick re­turn that went deep into Spar­tans ter­ri­tory, but four in­com­plete passes and a de­lay of game penalty quelled any WKreDW oI D sFore. 6SrL­nJ­fieOd did not have gaudy num­bers on of­fense ei­ther, but the Lions al­most had more neg­a­tive plays than ones for posiWLYe yDrdDJe. 7Key dLdn’W JeW WKeLr LnLWLDO firsW down unWLO 10 1/2 PLnuWes Wo Jo Ln WKe finDO quar­ter.

“,W wDs D Yery dLI­fiFuOW loss,” Lower Moreland coach Mark Mayson said. “The prob­lem was that we never had any con­ti­nu­ity on of­fense. We played good de­fense for quite a while, but we needed to make some­thing hap­pen when we had the ball. Noth­ing came to­gether and we weren’W DbOe Wo PoYe WKe bDOO con­sis­tently.”

6SrL­nJ­fieOd seDOed WKe deDO with seven min­utes to go in WKe JDPe. /ower 0ore­ODnd’s Joe Leventhal ran for a big 15yard gain, but a sub­se­quent fum­ble was picked up by the SroOL­fiF HoSNLns-Bey Dnd taken to the house. A cou­ple min­utes later, Dahm picked off a pass and re­turned it for a touch­down, giv­ing the Spar­tans a 29-0 lead.

“This win was for our se­nior class and we also wanted to send a mes­sage,” Shelly said. “We feel that we war­rant the op­por­tu­nity to prove we are the best team Ln DL­sWr­LFW 2ne AA. HoSe­fully peo­ple in the higher-up will give us that op­por­tu­nity in the fu­ture.”

De­spite a tough loss, Mayson was happy with the sea­son his team had.

“,W’s been D reDOOy Jood sea­son, a win­ning sea­son,” 0Dyson sDLd. “WKen LW’s all said and done it was a re­ward­ing year, but with a rouJK finLsK.”
